| p.2 #6 · 85 1.8 focus accuracy (v 50 1.4) |
How does the focus accuracy and speed of the 85 1.8 compare to the 50 1.4? Is the 85 better in low light conditions?
I am not crazy about the 50, and am considering selling some lenses to pick up a 35 1.4 and having the 85 1.8 along side of it. I do have an OM 50 1.2 that I like, so I'd still have a good 50 in the cupboard.
faster and better for the 85 1.8, very, very noticeable difference (although most copies seem to need MFA, of course same goes for 50 1.4 and even in worse ways with that one since that one is more prone to needing different MFA at different subject distances and it has so much random play it is hard to even settle on what MFA to use)
and yes the 85 1.8 does have a lot of longitudinal CA so near wide open it gets lots of PF, white uniforms will certainly be prone to bring it out even with indoor lighting, probably about the most PF you'll see from any lens, sharp lens though, good contrast, low lateral CA; the 50 1.4 also has quite a lot of PF, although my suspicion is the 85 1.8 has even more still, especially for sure comparing 1.8 to 1.8 and not 1.4 to 1.8.
